Adblock versus uBlock

Post by Keybounce » Mon Sep 04, 2017 1:50 am

So a real simple question: Which should I use?

From what I understand, uBlock is essentially a re-write of AdBlock from scratch, and they are equivalent. But I'm not even sure that this is correct.

Actually uBlockOrigin is quite different: https://github.com/gorhill/uBlock/blob/ ... philosophy

uBO creator @gorhill frequents this forum from time to time.

AFAIK Adblock just blocks ads.

uBo has a lot of extra weapons (especially if you visit "weird" sites - movies, porn, etc) , so ... choose it.
